My main fields are writing, dramaturgy and dramaturgy education.

I graduated from JAMU (both BA and MA) where I studied theatre dramaturgy. Currently I continue my studies as a doctoral student. My Ph.D. topic is focused on dramaturgy education; as a field researcher I visit universities in Europe where dramaturgy is studied and taught with the aim to learn about different approaches and patterns towards dramaturgy and its tuition. In 2019 I visited Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main and Justus-Liebig University in Giessen (Germany). In 2021 I did my research at Uniarts Helsinki (Finland).

Since 2020 I teach courses for students of dramaturgy and directing, Physical Theatre Department and Erasmus exchange students at JAMU. My research and my pedagogical activity are closely linked. 

In my artistic practise I switch between working on individual projects in theatre institutions and on independent projects. So far I have written texts for approx. 10 performances staged on Czech and Slovakian scenes. Besides that I write poetry and songs.

As a dramaturg I tend to be more and more interested in body and movement based work.
